Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.
Show & Tell

Join us on April 13th at 7:00pm for our monthly Guild meeting, the first of the Spring.
Jennifer Perkins, who was our Quilt Show Judge in 2013, will join us again, this time with an antique quilt trunk show for our meeting's program. She will also be available after the presentation to informally appraise or date your own antique quilts (see current newsletter for details).
Congratulations to the Quiltin' Bee team and all who participated in the event at the Moville Community Center on February 7th. Almost $11,000 was raised to benefit the June E. Nylen Cancer Center Patient Assistance Program. Mark your calendars now to attend the event in 2016 on February 13th.
Countdown to our Quilt Show: There is less than 6 months until our Quilt Show on September 26 & 27. Keep working on those quilts and boutique items and keep selling those quilt raffle tickets--the success of the show depends on you!
Our March 9th Guild Meeting (7:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church at 6th & Nebraska) will include a program by Cynthia Stary Drajna from Traer, Iowa. Cynthia owned Iowa Star Quilts quilt shop for many years, but closed it a few years back to concentrate on designing quilt patterns. You can see some of her patterns at: http://www.quiltwoman.com/Cynthia-Stary-Drajna-Iowa-Star-Quilts.aspx.
Cynthia will bring us a trunk show featuring sashing and border ideas, and a little something extra, namely ROMANCE. You won't want to miss this program.
Check the current newsletter link on this page to find out what else is going on with our Guild. We will have a BIG something going on in 2016 when we sponsor a Bonnie Hunter event. Mark your calendars now for April 23rd and 24th, 2016, for a weekend of classes and an evening trunk show program with Bonnie of Quiltville fame!
We'll see you on March 9th.
We hope to see you at our February 9th Guild meeting at 7:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church in Sioux City.
See the current newsletter for information about the Guild meeting and some of the Guild's activities.
And from the Guild's Facebook page, a reminder that it's only 8 days until the Quiltin' Bee on February 7th. It's going to be an amazing day of fun and we are going to raise a bunch of money for the Patient Assistance Program at June E. Nylen Cancer Center. Tell your friends to come and shop at the Quilty Rummage sale, put in some bids at the Small Quilt Auction and the Silent Auction. Feb. 7th, 9 a.m. at the Moville Community Center. See you there.
